The Global Report on Food Crises (GRFC) 2023 Mid-Year Update by the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) is the result of a collaborative effort among 16 partners to achieve a consensus-based assessment of acute food insecurity. The report includes the latest findings (as of August 2023) of global and regional acute food insecurity in 2023. The report and its resources can be downloaded here.
The update provides data on high levels of acute food insecurity in the 48 countries for which there is new data between January and August 2023. It shows that the number of people requiring urgent humanitarian food assistance remains persistently high, due to protracted food crises and the emergence of new shocks in various regions, and an expansion of analysis to cover more vulnerable people. Numbers are likely to rise through to the end of the year as new data becomes available for additional countries, highlighting the urgent need for coordinated efforts to address acute food insecurity.
